Make It Work, People

27 August 2017 Written by 

I was very excited to watch the opening of season 16 of Project Runway. Those of you who watch Project Runway are familiar with Tim Gunn’s famous line – “Carry on!” When things in the sewing room are getting out of control and going downhill, Tim says “Make it work! 

 

These are good words for my daily life. When the day gets a little crazy, I need to carry on and make it work! This reminds me to not let the “itty-bitty-committee” in my head get out of control. I need to stay focused and remember my tools and use them well.

I can go to my toolbox and find tools to help me “carry on.” Tools such as:

  • How important is it?
  • Keep it simple
  • Do the next right thing
  • First things first
  • Easy does it
  • Progress not perfection

 

I don’t need to throw myself into a panic. I don’t need to jump off the cliff (or off the wagon). I don’t need to run around in circles chasing my tail and biting my nails. I don’t need to have a tantrum, run away, or blame other people. I don’t need to start a drama or become a martyr. I just need to “carry on" and "make it work"!

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
